About ‘Fugitive Seas’
Dictionary definition: ‘fugitive’
- noun – a person who has escaped from captivity or is in hiding: e.g. fugitives from justice.
- adjective – quick to disappear; fleeting: e.g. the fugitive effects of light.
This series explores the fleeting nature of the remote coastal environment; momentary experiences of weather, sea & sky, endlessly changing colour and light. There is also something more introspective and intimate about these observations which are both visual and experiential; the feeling of escape. Sometimes this is a heart racing sense of freedom, whilst other works emote the ‘security’ of isolation; hiding from the world.
Sarah Jane Brown‘s expressive style combines an array of techniques; staining and glazing in thin fluid layers, sfumato (blending), or thick, textured impasto. Her paintings are an outpouring of personal feeling and sense of place, rather than representations of specific ‘views’. They purposely retain some ambiguity; to ‘metaphorically’ describe thoughts and emotions.
“In the studio, the fluid gestural medium of paint lends itself to echoing the sensations of being out in the elements, whilst simultaneously providing a visual ‘language’ which allows me to vent my feelings.
The seemingly cryptic titles are often just snippets of poetry or my own windswept thoughts.”
